Chinese new year

Chinese new year decorations

The Chinese temple


The first dancer takes to the floor amid the explosion of hundreds of firecrackers, smoke fills the air and a cloud of red paper wrappers swirls around the crowd

This dragon is made of brightly painted fabric stretched over a wire frame to which have been attached strings of several thousand lights


The lions perform various antics

and beg money from the crowd

portable shrines are carried round the villages, with much pomp and ceremony, and local businesses are blessed
